Verdict in Vygovsky’s case takes effect today
The Ukrainian had been arrested in Russia and found guilty of economic and military espionage
The Supreme Court of Russia ruled that the verdict in the case of Ukrainian citizen Valentyn Vygovsky pronounced by the Moscow District court remains unchanged, TASS reported. Thus, the verdict came into force on March 31. Under the sentence, Vygovsky is to spend 11 years of imprisonment in Russian high-security prison.
In December 2015, Moscow District court sentenced Valentyn Vygovsky to 11 years of imprisonment. The Ukrainian was found guilty of economic and military espionage, and an attempt to pass information that contains commercial confidentiality to another state. The case was investigated by FSB, Russia’s federal security service.
Ukraine’s Foreign Minister called the court’s decision an act of Russia’s headstrong cynicism.
